Sedona Star

Climbing around on rocks is the thing to do in Sedona. The timing for this hike was perfect for me to get the sun right in the middle of Cathedral Rock. The bright light was a perfect path to follow to our destination.

In the Desert

Life in the desert can be hard. Keep it interesting by showing off your bright green colors whenever you can!

I’d Travel All the Way Here for the Anemones

I love the sea, I love the fish, but I’d go on an entire dive trip just to watch the anemones slowly wave in the current.

Dripping Rock

The limestone rocks of Phang Nga Bay have two neat party tricks. They can both stick sharply out of the water and also look like they are dripping back into the water as they are eroded away by the bright green water below.

Richelieu Rock

One of my best dives in Thailand was at Richelieu Rock. This reef has a crazy amount of life, both fish and corals, and in this spot they all swirl together to make a very busy but very intricate pattern. The rock itself barely sticks out of the water, and is pretty far from other islands. This isolation must make it a safe place for all this life to exist.

The Middle of the Rock

The hike up to the saddle of Cathedral Rock isn’t far, but it is way up above where you start. The vantage point isn’t expected until you pop out at the top, and get a nice look at the rock on each side of you and the view down below.

Talus Cave

What’s a Talus Cave? Am I making up a whole new type of cave for my enjoyment? No, I am not. This is a unique cave made by boulders falling into a deep canyon, leaving an open space below. People walk through this cave, and under boulders hanging above your head, for fun. Also bats live in these caves. Good times.

Nice Night for Fishin’

As usual I came here for the sunset, but word on the street is that this beach is also a good place to catch some fish. On this night everyone got what they wanted!

The Falls Below the Bridge

This angle of Christine Falls is not the one you normally see. I took this from the bridge very close to the falls, where the water drops straight down below you only a few feet away. There is a viewpoint down the road, but I decided to get up to the edge of the bridge, and shoot it top to bottom in a vertical panorama. This distorts the height of the falls and makes it feel like it is snaking through the rocks in front of you.

Kolob Terrace Sunset

It took some scouting, scrambling and a short sprint to get here in time for sunset. It wasn’t far off the road in the Kolob Terrace area of Zion, but it also wasn’t directly accessible. When a sunset calls sometimes I have to make a run for it!
